International experience-based learning encompasses academic internships, cooperative education, research, and service learning opportunities abroad. International experiential learning allows students to apply classroom knowledge in a real-world setting while gaining a better understanding of a given field in a global context.
Why Go Abroad
As they strive to produce a globally competent workforce, employers are interested in students who have international work experience. Students who go abroad demonstrate that they have the skills and cultural sensitivity to succeed.
By working abroad, you apply your academic learning to real-world problems and adapt to multi-cultural environments. Success today demands increased adaptability, cross-cultural competency, and intellectual flexibility.
Our team in the Division of Experience-Based Learning and Career Education (ELCE) works closely with UC International to offer these programs.
